WILLAMINA, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say two people were killed when their SUV went off a cliff in rural northwest Oregon.

Local fire authorities on Sunday rescued one other person from the SUV, which was 100 or more feet down a steep embankment  north of Willamina in Yamhill County.

Three other people were found along the road about two miles from the crash site, authorities said.

Mariah Prescott, administrative assistant for local fire officials, said Monday that she believes those three were in the vehicle when it crashed but were able to make it back to the road.

Those three people were taken to Salem Hospital.
